Kaiju No. 8 video game announced, coming to smartphones and PC

Kaiju No. 8 is finally getting its first video game adaptation!

As the anime continues to be one of the most popular this season, an upcoming Kaiju No. 8 game was announced recently, and it will be released on smartphones and PC soon.

This upcoming game was revealed with a trailer that was released shortly after the airing of the anime’s 10th episode. Instead of just a title reveal, the trailer features what seems to be actual gameplay footage, revealing that the game will feature 3D graphics instead of a 2D anime style.

What’s more, the trailer also confirms that the series’ main cast will play big roles in the game, and from the looks of it, this seems like an action game. You can check out the trailer here:

A game adaptation of this hit new shonen anime is no surprise given how it has become quite popular in the Spring 2024 season. What is interesting is that the game seems to be a big-budget action title instead of the more typical turn-based RPG style for many other anime game adaptations.

Of course, it remains to be seen if that will be the case, especially as there’s not much info about the game so far. It’s possible that the game will feature a more typical gameplay style, though fans will have to wait and see.

While the release of the Kaiju No. 8 game is probably going to take a while, the anime’s first season continues to get new episodes this season, and you can watch it in the PH via Ani-One, Netflix, and other platforms.
